How much fluid does a breastfeeding mother need?

Posted on September 26, 2015 at 2:02 AM
Water:
It is good to see more people are carrying refillable water bottles - computers on the train, school kids, breastfeeding Mums, fitness fans, busy Mums on the go, bike riders. It is one of those positive practices that has sprung up, to maintain hydration conveniently - without having to look for a drinking fountain or a shop. It's also good for the environment. So it is win/win.
Keeping the water bottle hygienic I guess means one user - not sharing it - and regular washing and draining it to dry it. On days that I use a water bottle I wash it in really hot water at the end of the day, before refilling it. When I have time I try to remember to let it drain on the sink, not every day, before refilling it. What do others do?

Other fluids:
Earlier in this blog I mentioned soup as a way of drinking enough fluid. I'd love to have your comments about your favourite soup - chicken soup, pumpkin soup, congee, or other soups. While I enjoy many soups, I particularly enjoy the pumpkin and sweet potato or pumpkin and lentil soup in a cafe on campus.  It's my occasional treat.
Do YOU have a favourite soup recipe you want to share, or a story about why you enjoy it?
